The Forum's "New Messages" Indicator

I'm not sure if this is the right place to do this, but I'd like to lodge my disapproval of the blinking 'new message' indicator on the forum's main page.

I'd much prefer to see a solid indicator in a primary color...

Yeah, me too.

Unfortunately the newest version of YaBB seems to have taken a few steps backwards in design terms. At some point we’ll probably redo the template to better match the rest of the site.

me too.

What's weird to me is that once saw some old style icons with different colors. I don't think they were cached copies of the old ones, but I could be wrong.

Anyway, you can go to your "user CP" and change some preferences to use an older style. I'm not crazy about that one either, but at least the new message indicator isn't as obnoxious.

If an admin has time to mess with it, you could probably just yank the icon images from the old version and drop them into the new install.


The yellow checkmarks are back for me as of right now. They really are MUCH easier to see.
